Honestly I think it is the vmware that does not like my setup. It does all sorts of goofy and glitchy things such as not liking my bluetooth keyboard and flashing its caps on/off repeatedly. Obviously I have more then one keyboard.
Dunno really. At the mercy of you who run linux in a vmware environment. Thanks for all your help but at this point it would undoubtedly better serve ocn in the chimp challenge in avoiding any more downtime.
Thats the one issue... VMware can be picky or buggy at times. I recommend running win smp right now anyways to keep the ppd up. We are getting down to 2 days left which is about the time for a bigadv, I would hate to see work wasted since it missed the deadline for the cc.
In the future I would suggest uninstalling player, reboot, reinstalling player, reboot, then redownload and set up the vm. I've had random issues but that order usually fixes it.
